getting your skin ready for summer

how to use coconut oil around the house Village Naturals aromatherapy Lavendar review dr. brandt microdermabrasion review


I don’t know what happened but I can’t believe it’s almost summer.   That means it’s time to start slathering on the SPF and thinking more about our skin.  Growing up I was lucky to have a mother who made sure to keep me out of the sun and to educate me on a dedicated skin routine at a young age.  To this day I’m still dedicated to skincare and am always looking for great products to help me do so.  Lately I’ve been experimenting with some new products and found several new items you’ll want to incorporate into your own skincare routines.

Exfoliate — One of the most important steps a lot of us forget to do in our weekly skincare routine is exfoliating.  I’ve been trying Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion and let me start off by saying this stuff really works!  After using it my skin feels incredibly soft and I’ve noticed over time the texture of my skin has improved.   If you’d like to give Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion a try, you can get 15% off your purchase by entering in the code BABBLE16.

Replenish — With the busy outdoor schedule many of us keep during the summer months, our skin has some tough days ahead of it.  Whether it’s from more sun exposure or the added showering after swimming, replenishing your skin’s moisture becomes extra important.  European Wax Center’s Renew Me Serum checks off both of those boxes as it not only moisturizes but also includes anti-inflammatory agents to help combat some of the sun damage we all end up with.  It contains a blend of powerful antioxidants that help defend against harsh environmental stresses and other skin-aging factors.

Relax — I’m a long-bath-at-the-end-of-the-day kind of girl.  I love to soak in the tub and read a magazine.  While I love bubble in my bath, sometimes I want something more soothing.  I enjoy using Village Naturals range of Aromatherapy Calm Lavender + Chamomile Body Soak, Calm Lavender + Chamomile Double Butter Bath Bombs, Pure Lavender Essential Oil as a sort of bath trifecta.  All the products work together to relax and restore your body.   I also like to use the oil in and out of the tub as a great way to further wind down after a long day.  Click here for a coupon

Moisturize — I know you’ve probably heard or read about the benefits of coconut oil.  It’s great to use as a moisturizer when I get out of the tub or as a way to deep condition my hair.   I use Vita Coco Coconut Oil as it’s 100% organic, unrefined, cold pressed, virgin coconut oil.  (And if I run out of oil in the kitchen I can cook with it too!)

Makeup — A great lipstick will instantly perk up your look.  Butter London Plush Rush Lipstick in Fab is a universally great shade and it actually plumps up your lips.  Use along with the Plush Rush Lipliner (it features a brush which makes it very easy to blend) and the Lip Gloss for added shine, and even more plumping!  To sweeten the deal use code BabbleBoxx2016 for 20% off your order.

Brows — This is one of those products that just completes your makeup routine.  The brow highlighter makes your eye makeup pop!  Even if I’m hurrying out the door I’ll curl my eyelashes, put on mascara and this Oh My Brow! Brow Highlighter and it gives the appearance that I did my makeup.  It doesn’t get much better than that folks!

Hope you love these products as much as I do.  Have a great weekend and if you try out some of them let me know what you think!  Xo Ally
